Literary synopsis

Highly personal and uncompromising, Notebooks of a Naked Youth is narrated by one William Loveday, an acned youth, possessed of piercing intelligence, acute self-loathing and great personal charm. Haunted by intense sexual desires, the ghosts of childhood and a 7,000 -year-old mummified Bog Man, William Loveday leads us on a naked odyssey from the 'rust belt' of industrial North Kent to the sleazy sex clubs of Hamburg's Reeperbahn –a twilight world of murderous pimps and tattooed hermaphrodites- and a final descent into an expressionist hell.
